Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
I HAD A 40 GB HARD DRIVE PUT IN SYSTEM/ SYSTEM SHUT OFF.
TRIED A NEW 160 GB HD. SAME PROBL. TRIED AN OLD
486 K HD /SYSTEM STAYED ON BUT NOT ENOUGH STORAGE
FOR WINDOWS 98. SOLUTIONS PLEASE
Did you configure the 160GB hard drive as second???
there is a shorting pin between the ribbem cable and the power cable.
take a look on the hard drive, there should have adiagram shows where the shorting pin need to go to make it as secondary drive.
install the hard drive as secondary drive.
if you want the drive to be the primary. you nee to install the operating system on it.
with out operating system the machine will boot up in to DOS only, and a error message telling you the drive has no loader.
